    I don't know about the rotation but just a suggestion to see if it will
    make the photo looks a little shorter, or I am trying to see if there is any
    way to change the FOCUS POINT from the belly to upper body.

    I don't often do rotating, but cropping is the art of post processing
    which can make a huge difference. So, if rotating doesn't help then you
    don't have to do it, and one of the main thing is trying to drive the focus
    to where you want viewers to focus on.
    I haven't looked, but to me if you can see or tell the difference and like
    it more then it should be better. I will try to find it and will you my
    opinion, but I can pretty much can tell you right of the bat that the upper
    part of the photo (the one you showed few days ago) may need a little
    sharper (the face should be sharper than the belly).

    It's lot better than the previous ones those you made them overexposed.
    BTW, have you added any sharpen to the whole image? cuz I can see the eye
    is sharper (may be a little to sharp?) and so the rest of the photo.

    And that is it! Photoshop can boost up or destroying the image with a
    simple command.

    Ok I Think that the error was to add sharpness after the resize of the
    image to the whole image:(
    In the psd I have added the sharpness not to the whole image but only to
    the face.
    Do you have a private e-mail? (if you can)
    the mine is: imagogio et hotmail dot com

    :) ok I must use photoshop with care

    Thanks a lot Joel

    I am not PSP user (only looked at it once over a decade ago) to know what
    it may look like, but if you are Photoshop user then I would say you may
    start to believe that it will not do no less than PSP but lot more.

    I am not Sharpen believer especially that I never apply sharpen to the
    whole image, but I can tell ya that Photoshop has several different ways to
    apply the sharpen to the whole image, as well as applying the shapren to
    selected area or applying by Brushing.

    Applying by Brush command which I sometime use to apply some sharpen to the
    eyes by selecting the Sharpen command then using Brush Tool to apply the
    sharpen to the eyes (or any specific area).
    I do have regular email and hotmail, but I rarely use email. Like Hotmail
    I don't read but in order to keep the account alive I use a email checker to
    check (without reading) about once a month. The regular email is just for
    in/out payments, I don't use email for chatting so very few friends and
    relatives know my email just for emergency

    *If* you want to learn Post Processing the you may want to join some forum
    like www.dpreview.com (join the Retouching forum) there you can learn quite
    abit from other members. I used to be an actived member of DPreview but
    haven't done any in the past few years.

    There you can post the link to the photo you want to work on or opinion,
    then others may join by posting their version (of the photo you ask them to
    work on) and you will have the chance to compare yours with others. They
    can give you step-by-step instruction if you want too.
    I have been using Photoshop for around 2 decades so I know it pretty well
    ... except the CS3 which my health hasn't been so good lately to have much
    chance to mess with it.
